Who would have thought deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grew the perfect ingredient to build an extraordinary Porter in Colorado? An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure, real vanilla bean. Breckenridge Brewerys Vanilla Porter. A vanilla kiss in a rich, dark sea.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
More of a deep amber body than brown. A fast fading tan head. Aroma had a strong vanilla note upfront, a nice balance of roasted coffee and mild chocolate. Flavor seemed to be dominated by vanilla, some mild wood notes seemed interesting. It need more of a roasted malt presence to cut through the vanilla. Kind of light on the palate.

Smell of black olives, nice dark brown color, vanilla in taste (obviously). Very smooth and easy to drink, but this is rather a minus for a porter - very thin watery body. In total very light and pleasant dark beer, but not a real porter as to me.

Originally rated on 12/31/08. Aroma is a vanilla and white chocolate mix, Flavor also had the vanilla/ white chocolate mix but it also had a nutty roasted malts. Sweet and slightly thin mouthfeel, overall it was o.k.

Dayton Dragons, draft. Taste artificially vanilla. Tastes like vanilla extract, not vanilla bean. Mediciney. Eh. Sounded like it would be better than it is.

StoutBeerReviews (120) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2017
vanilla notes are sparse but taste very authentic. its really just a hint of it tho, I wish they bumped it up a notch. otherwise a very typical simple porter. Its heavy on the dry side, and im not a big fan of dry beers.

dambor (620) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2017
Pours dark brown with small head. Aroma: caramel, roasted malt, some dried fruit. Taste: caramel dominates, some roastiness and maybe a slight touch of vanilla.

Gluepot (610) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2017
Really tasty, well balanced 5.4% porter. The nose features chocolate milk, vanilla, roasted malt and vanilla. Lots of the same in a nice creamy mix in the taste profile. Touches of coffee, caramel, almonds and other nuts, and tea round out a smooth taste experience. A really nice brew. Its obviously hard to get good ratings with the ratebeer crowd unless you are a hop bomb or an Imperial Stout. Pity.

Loved it. Bottle was so much better than the barbeque it went with. Tasted like dessert, liked the low alcohol content, loved the flavor. Was it just the company?

Great color with nice cream colored head. Faints smells of the vanilla with malt and chocolate. Flavor is not very strong. You get some notes of vanilla and bitter chocolate but is very weak. Body is very thin leaving a little more to be desired. Overall it is a good option for someone just getting into Porters but comes up short for those that really enjoy them.
